    Expecting a little one any day now, so my concert schedule is not quite as robust as it has been in years past:

    5/23 - RHCP
    8/4&5 - Hinterland

    Really don't have any other's right now which is kind of bumming me out. Passed on Metallica, passed on John Mayer in Chicago, passed on TOOL in St. Paul and Chicago, passed on Chris Stapleton's outrageously gouged ticket prices in Des Moines. Might try to catch some of the local shows at Wooly's. I know Miike Snow was coming and I really enjoyed them at Lolla a few years back.

    Yes, the Mishawaka is fantastic, just had lunch there on Sunday on the way back from the mountains. A recent list named it the #2 venue in CO after Red Rocks, and I would totally agree. Small outdoor amphitheatre next to whitewater mountain river with old-school bar and restaurant. http://www.themishawaka.com/

    This is one of those summers where wife and I damn near go broke buying concert tickets, but too many good ones to say no to:

    Ryan Adams @ Red Rocks
    Ron Gallo @ Larimer Lounge
    Avett Bros & Shovels and Rope @ Red Rocks
    BECK @ Red Rocks ***most anticipated***
    The Record Company @ Steamboat Springs (free)
    Amos Lee @ Red Rocks
    Spoon @ Mishawaka
    Wilco & New Pornographers @ Denver bike fest
    Gov't Mule & Yonder Mountain String Band @ Red Rocks
    JJ Grey & North Mississippi All Stars @ Red Rocks
    Sturgill Simpson @ Red Rocks
    Explosions in the Sky @ Mishawaka
    RHCP @ Pepsi Center

    George Clinton is coming to Hoyt Sherman. I will be at that. Hall and Oats were a blast. Thought tears for fears mailed it in.

    I was there. They are very good. I've seen Aussie Floyd, Think Floyd, the Pink Floyd Experience, and Pink Floyd in Ames 1994.

    Yeah, you can screw right off, too. That looks amazing.

    Avett Bros are going to be in Council Bluffs in October, so a girlfriend and I are pretty positive we're doing that - Chris Stapleton is the next night in DSM, but it just seems a little overpriced due to WF's crazy fees.

    I would kill for, like, half of these. I'm so jealous.

    My first concert was Alabama at the State Fair. My music tastes have changed a lot since 7th grade:)

    I think I am most pumped for Gary Clark Jr of all of the acts at Hinterland, pretty easily. I can't wait to see him live.

    Dawes was really good here a couple of months ago. They put on a good show - much higher energy than you would expect from a band that has so many mellow songs.
